Goldenseal Natural Remedy For Oral Thrush
What is Oral Thrush And How Does One Get It?
Oral Thrush is a condition caused by the overgrowth of the Candida albicans fungus, commonly known as yeast, in the mouth. Candida is a parasitic type fungus that inhabits the intestines, genital tract, mouth, esophagus, and throat. Normally this fungus lives in healthy balance with the other bacteria and yeasts in the body, however, certain conditions can cause it to multiply, weaken the immune system further and cause an acute infection. Symptoms of Oral Thrush include creamy-looking white patches on the tongue and mucous membranes of the mouth. If the patches are scraped off, bleeding may result.
Oral thrush can affect both male and female, however it is seldom transmitted sexually. It is most common in babies and persons with compromised immune systems. Anyone who has been on long term antibiotic therapy or has taken antibiotics often probably has an overgrowth of Candida somewhere in the body. Antibiotics weaken the immune system and also destroy the "friendly" bacteria that normally keep candida under control. Food allergies are often a contributing factor in cases of oral thrush.
What Natural Remedies Does Sleepy Hollow Farm Produce and How Were They Developed?
As a part of our USDA sponsored research relating to goldenseal, and involving cooperators from seven universities, we did extensive literature studies concerning traditional uses for goldenseal as well as current medical research. One area that was documented in several reports was goldenseal's potential effectiveness against Candida. The beneficial properties of goldenseal for oral thrush were known to the Native Americans and early settlers for centuries. We also found that modern research has demonstrated goldenseal's effectiveness in inhibiting more than 25 other microorganisms including Staph. and Strep*. See our goldenseal research page for an extensive listing of current research involving goldenseal.
Conventional treatments for oral thrush include several antifungal medications. Unfortunately, the use of these agents, especially in chronic or repeated cases, can lead to the development of stronger strains of yeast that are drug resistant. Higher doses are then required which in turn further weaken the immune system.
Fortunately there is a completely natural remedy for Oral Thrush. Goldenseal is a natural plant antimicrobial and modern research has demonstrated goldenseal's effectiveness against Candida as well as a wide variety of oral diseases including canker sores, mouth ulcers, and gum disease on many occasions*. Several university studies are currently underway to determine why goldenseal is so effective in these areas including one, supported by the National Institutes of Health, entitled Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), Remedy For Oral Diseases being conducted in the laboratories of Dr. Christine Wu at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Please see our Goldenseal Research page for an extensive compilation of current medical research regarding goldenseal as well as information about traditional uses and cultivation research.
How Quick Does It Work and How Do I Use Goldenseal?
Many of our customers report that goldenseal provided relief from pain in a few hours time and total healing within a few days without resorting to synthetic chemicals or antibiotics.
Traditionally powdered goldenseal was applied directly to the site of the infection however we have found the liquid extract to be the most convenient and easy to use. Simply apply the liquid extract to the affected area as needed with a cotton swab.
